Composing and decomposing numbers is fun. Here we see a number being built in base two. Two like shapes 'compose' to form the next larger shape and so on, until there is only one shape of a kind, otherwise known as a binary number.

Building Base Two

Recognizing subQuans in any base takes some play. The smaller the base, the easier to see. Here we have 9-digit base three subQuans. Can you name the different patterns?
